Adonis "Superman" Stevenson will make his Showtime debut on May 24 from the Bell Centre in Montreal, facing WBC mandatory challenger Andrzej Fonfara in a bout that could set up a fight against the winner of the April 17 fight between Bernard Hopkins and Beibut Shumenov, holders of the IBF and WBA titles, respectively.
WBC and Ring Magazine champion Stevenson (23-1, 20 KO) has become a big star in his adopted home in the province of Quebec, and will be a hot ticket even considering Fonfara (25-2, 15 KO) is a big underdog. Tickets are on sale tomorrow, and here's the info from the promoter:
